Set the Table - July 1st to July 4th



The July 1st and July 4th holidays are fast approaching.

We are expecting our friends from the United States to visit over the holiday.

Our table is set as a nod to both the Canadian and American July holidays.




Set the Table - July 1st to July 4th



Some of the place settings are Red, White, and Blue.

While other place settings are Red and White.

See how we folded our napkins here: THREE FAVOURITE SUMMER NAPKINS





Set the Table - July 1st to July 4th



There are three common elements in each place setting - Red Napkins, Red Poppy plates, and Red tumblers.

The centrepiece sports flags from both countries.  There are no flags or patriotic references anywhere else on the table.

The centrepieces were made using large, empty coffee cans.  See how we did it  HERE

Unfortunately, when we were shooting this table it was threatening to rain.  It would have been nice to see the sunshine.
